Faults and Problems
When a laundry machine breaks it can be a massive inconvenience though often the fault can be something really simple. Finding out about the most common faults could help avoid great expense or at the very least rule out the most obvious things that could go wrong.
Problems could be something very simple like a loose object in the drum of the appliance or a clogged filter. Checking the most common problems first might just save calling out a professional unnecessarily. When checking for faults it is important to turn off the power to the appliance first to avoid any mishaps. Reducing or increasing the load size could also eliminate some issues relating to spinning or lack of.
Hiring a washing machine repair expert is of course recommended if the most obvious checks prove to be fruitless.

COMMON ERRORS & PROBLEMS
A washer-dryer that isn’t spinning correctly could be attributed to a too small or a too heavy load. Adjusting your load size could alleviate this fault. A washer has balance sensors that might detect a small load and cause it to not spin correctly. Similarly too much washing in your machine might mean a machine doesn’t drain correctly and ultimately cause it not to spin. By adding or removing items from a load could rectify this washer fault. Making sure the filter, typically at the front of a machine, isn’t blocked is also a way of checking the cause of not spinning.
It is possible that a washer fault could develop when the cycle seems too noisy. Most people know the noise levels of their machine so notice easily when it begins to make a strange noise, shake or rattle. Checking the filters and the drum for anything immediately obvious could eradicate this problem. There could be an object in the drum that has fallen out of a load of washing and removing that could stop the noise happening.
A rumbling noise could signify a washer fault with the bearings on the drum. Checking the filter might again reveal an obvious blockage that could clear the drain pump and do away with the excessive noise arising from this type of fault.
It is fairly commonplace that no washer will let the door be opened whilst a cycle is underway. However, once a programme has completed the door release should activate. If this doesn’t happen then it could be possible to power off the machine and open the lid. Use the lever inside to release the door and open.
It might seem like an embarrassing problem to have but having a smelly washer is a relatively common fault. Modern liquid detergent and washing at a colder temperature means that bacteria is give the opportunity to breed and then causes the bad smell. Doing a maintenance wash will usually cure any smells leave your washer-dryer in tip top condition.
This type of appliance fault could really be anything and short of eliminating things like a power cut or a break in electrical power then it typically worth hiring a professional to help. There’s a number of washer faults that can be diagnosed and treated by the owner but anything more technical needs the owner’s input.
A machine that is not spinning presents a big problem of very wet washing. Whilst washing might be clean if the washer is not spinning then you are likely to be presented with wringing wet loads of washing that would take a mammoth effort to get dry even on a hot day! These days we’re accustomed to doing much bigger loads and as a result we have much more washing to get dry. Despite washing machines having bigger drums than a few years ago there are times when we still expect too much of a washer and this can cause them not to turn.
Overloading your appliance with too much washing is the most common cause of a laundry machine not turning. As each washer is reliant on balance in the drum, as soon as this is compromised you are likely to experience the appliance not spinning or stopping completely. When a machine has a large load or even one that is too light the washer senses it is out of balance and as a result over compensates by stopping working properly. Even if it starts to spin it will not reach top spin speeds if there is a problem detected with the size of the load. Read on to find out how overloading can break your washing machine.
When a washer is not spinning it is nearly always down to user error and redistributing the load or reducing the amount in the machine might resolve the problem. If in doubt it is always better to do a couple of smaller loads rather than one huge load in order to protect your machine. The chances are if you think your appliance is too full then it is and prolonged periods of doing loads that are too heavy won’t serve you well long term.
Checking the filters for blockages could also mean a machine is not turning. This could be accompanied by the machine not draining properly so if you have both problems then a clogged filter could be the culprit.
For a persistent washer that is not turning then calling out an engineer might be the only option. If you’re confident you’ve ruled out the obvious problems and the machine is working fine otherwise then it could be a problem with the motor or pump or another part.

Older washing machines never used to be as hi tech as the ones we find today, nor did they have the array of programmes to choose from. It is certainly true that modern washing machines can do much more in terms of the variety of programmes, timer settings and other add ons that people have become accustomed to. With digitial displays on most washers it is simple to select a programme for a load of washing and away you go. When things go wrong it’s typically possible to determine the problem from an error code on the digital display. When a washer is displaying error then it is telling you that something isn’t quite right.
Error codes can usually be translated by knowing what the code means or looking it up in the user manual. The code that is being displayed could range from something very simple that can be easily rectified to something more serious that could require a technician. A washer that displays error codes is trying to communicate and the chances are the machine won’t work until the problem is resolved. Some people aren’t keen on modern washer, preferring that a washer would still work despite a problem but actually it is the machines way of protecting parts and preserving the machine’s longevity.
Common appliance codes could be related to a problem with the door, a water heating sensor, a software or circuit board fault, a motor or pump fault plus much more. Simple things that could have an error code could be the door being left ajar on the machine or the detergent drawer not in situ properly.
To preserve the life of a washer and prevent the appliance from displaying error codes it is worth taking care of it. Using a washer-dryer inappropriately, overloading it or expecting it to deal with oversize item are all likely things to cause problems. Using a washing incorrectly is not normally likely to break it immediately but you could be storing up problems further down the line and let’s face it having a broken washer is very inconvenient. Treating your machine to regular servicing and using a special cleaner to ensure parts don’t get clogged up is usually recommended.
